1980 Mercedes Benz 450SEL Base 8 Cyl 4.5L

Body & Interior

My car is actually a 1979, but the list doesn't go back that far! The problem is the sun roof, I have no idea how to ope

how to open it , or for matter how to close it. Is it manual or electric etc? The vehicle is old and fairly decrepit , but it was cheap $1400,- and the sun roof would be nice to have. The brakes are also very spongy and it drinks fuel like a tank, but ....it goes like an old , I really have no idea, the word whore comes to mind, maybe cuckoo clock would be more pc

You should bleed your brake system, it is possible that air is present in your brake system that’s why it is spongy. Also check the condition of your brake fluid, it might be contaminated.

Try to check the condition of your air filter, spark plugs and tire pressures. If your air filter is dirty/clogged or your spark plugs are fouled and/or your tire pressures are uneven your vehicle will consume more fuel that it should.

If your vehicle is equipped with carburetor try to adjust or overhaul it. And observe if the problem with your fuel consumption will come back.
